A Ride in the Sun
I did a 36 mile round trip to Chinnor and Towersey on Saturday in about 29 deg C heat. Had lunch on a park bench in Towersey - site of folk festival. It was a bit hot for cycling much further. I'd pumped my tyres up to 120 psi and found my hands seemed to suffer from tingling on the way back. I also had my mudguards on in preparation for next week's audax, and kept getting leaves and bits of grit between the guards and tyres. Maybe I should have bought clip-ons. I think I'll remove them after the audax.
